My Approach to Helping

We all experience seasons of life where we feel very alone and need someone to talk to. Whether you can trace that sense of painful isolation to something specific in your current circumstances, personal history, or future life trajectory, it’s very normal to feel uncertain and overwhelmed with how to move forward. Our response to this kind of distress can affect our relationships, our health, our work, and other important areas of our life.

If this feels like your situation, and it is interfering with living the happy, satisfied life you want, I believe it is a sign of courage and strength to reach out for supportive help. You will be welcomed into a private, peaceful setting, and invited to share your concerns and begin the important work of restoring balance in your life.

My first goal as your counselor is to listen well. I know what it’s like to sit in your chair. My goal is for you to help me understand your story and connect with you. As we talk together, I draw from many years of experience and integrative therapeutic approaches. I will help you connect with inner strengths and resources you may have overlooked or underestimated. Feeling empowered, you’ll find yourself able to make positive changes that lead to personal growth, help you feel better, and believe in and achieve your goals.

More Info About My Practice

The heart of my passion and joy in my work as a therapist is offering two very important things to those I help: 1) affordable professional services and 2) the opportunity for you to have the time you need to achieve the understanding and healing you want. I was a therapy client in a time when I had very little money to spend, and that’s why I am determined to offer therapy to you for such an affordable fee. I know that first hour goes quickly, so I always try to have extra time available for my clients! If you need or want additional time we can continue and just adjust in 15-minute increments when our session is over. I accept cash or check.

My specialties include individual and couple counseling, personal life coaching, and an excellent program for marriage preparation - all focused toward supporting healthy living and healthy relationships.

If this sounds like what you are seeking, I look forward to talking with you!
